Prior to test driving ElectraStim's wares, I knew next to nothing about the Electro Sex toys available on the Lovehoney website. I knew they were sex toys, and I knew electricity was somehow involved. That was it! Now, after experiencing both products, my interest in Electro Sex toys has been well and truly sparked!
Just mentioning 'masturbation' brings to mind solo pleasure like no other, but did you know that mutual masturbation is a thing too? It's pretty great! It lets you and your lover share intimacies in new ways and if you've never tried it before, you're totally missing out.
If you've got a partner and a willing set of palms then do we have the list for you. All these positions are great for couples with any gender configuration – if we haven't mentioned your bits, we promise the feel will still be good with whatever you've got.

But, this period has made me realise that our relationship relies more heavily on activities and adventures than either of us ever thought.
I've come up with some different date ideas that my partner and I can do while in lockdown so that we feel a little bit more like ourselves again. Lots of these can be done with family and other housemates too, so whoever you're locked in with – spice it up!
